University of Texas
Signed Softball for Tom Griffy

 

 

Physics Softball, ca 1977

 

It was about 1977 during the spring "Physnic" at Eastwood Park, that the students and faculty got up a softball game. During the game,, Tom Griffy, playing first or right field, went after a high foul ball, unfortunately there was a light pole in the area and Tom crashed into it breaking a number of ribs. This was a painful injury and all there sympathized with his discomfort. Someone, probably Janee Trybyszewski or Myrna Payne purchased a softball and asked people to sign it. The graduate students who frequented the fifth floor are the largest number of signees. A few faculty and staff are also on the ball. Tom kept the ball until his death when Mel Oakes disovered it among his boxes of papers, books and personal effects.
